Legal Research Finds Precedent for Israel's Right to Try Eichmann

. Israel's right to try Nazi mass
murderer Adolf Eichmann rests
on firm legal as well as moral
grounds, according to a study
published by the American
Jewish Congress.
The analysis cites precedents
in international law and in
American jurisprudence s u p -
porting Israel's claim to juris-
diction in the case.

- The study. points out, for ex-
ample, that international law
has no provisions governing
jurisdiction by individual na-
tions in criminal cases. In cer-
tain crimes, such as piracy, all
nations are considered to be
equally affronted and any state
acquiring physical custody of
the accused may try him, it is
noted.

Book on Liquidation of Hungarian
Jews Called Libel by Israel Judge

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — A aew
controversy over the extermina-
tion of the Jews of Hungary
loomed in the expected publica-
tion of a new b o o k by Joel
Brand, the emissary who nego-
tiated with Nazi mass murderer
Adolph Eichmann, now await-
ing trial in Israel.

Supreme Court Justice Chaim
Cohen and his aide, Amnon
Thal, revealed they had sent a
letter to the publisher asserting
that the book, "Devil and Soul,"
containe d slanderous refer-
ences.

A spokesman for the pub-
lisher said at a press conference
that some of the text dealing
with various individuals had
been changed but that another
letter had been received from
Thal asserting that the changes
were inadequate and threaten-
ing court action to prevent pub-
lication as well as a suit for
damages.
Justice Cohen was the state
prosecutor in the trial of Dr.
Israel Kastner, one-time leader
of Hungarian Jewry, who was
c ondemned inferentially on
charges of collaborating with
the Nazis in war-time Hungary.
Dr. Kastner, who was assas-
sinated in 1957, was cleared
posthumously by the Supreme
Court of Israel in 1958 when
that court found a 75-year-old
pamphleteer, Malkiel Gruene-
wald guilty of having libeled
Dr. Kastner. That verdict over-
ruled a district court verdict
sustaining Gruenewald.
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, the
Sixth Bureau of the Israel

Say U.S. Young Jews
Ignorant of Israel

STARLIGHT, Pa., (JTA) —
American Jewish youth were
criticized for being lax in their
pursuit of knowledge of Israel's
history, development and cur-
rent affairs.
The charge was leveled by
delegates attending the 15th
annual convention of Bnai Brith
Young Adults, a constituent
division of the Bnai Brith Youth
Organization.
A resolution adopted by the
convention said that such ..ack
of interest was a holdover from
the old concept of dual loyalty.
The delegates declared that
the most effective means for
stimulating these bonds was
through organization member-
ship. They cited leadership
taken by their own organiza-
tion in encouraging an exchange
of views with Israeli youth
through pen-pal clubs and the
annual summer institute spon-
sored by the Bnai Brith Youth
Organization which takes a
group of American and Cana-
dian members for a seven-week
work and study visit to Israel.
A group of 40 BBYO members
is currently in Israel on such
a visit.

TORONTO, (JTA) — Mayor

Congress.

.

for the trial of N a z i Adolph
Eichmann, will submit to him
next week a list of attorneys
who have indicated their will-
ingness to serve as defense
counsel in his forthcoming trial
in Jerusalem.
All of the candidates for the
defense assignment live abroad.
Most of them are from West
Germany and Austria but, in
addition, lawyers in sever al
other European countries have
expressed readiness to act as
Eichmann's defense counsel.
Eichmann will be . permitted
to choose as he wishes with one
exception: Israel officials have
indicated that no attorney with
a Nazi past will be admitted to
Israel.

Vandals Get Jail Term
going back to the 1886 case of for Destroying Menorah

The American Jewish Con-
gress do cum e n t cites the
unanimous adoption by the
General Assembly of the
United Nations in 1946 of a
resolution affirming the
principles o f international
law as laid down at the Nu-
remberg trial—among them,
the outlawing of mass murder.
The fact that Eichmann may
have been forcibly abducted
from Argentina has no bearing
either in international law or in
American legal practice on Is-
rael's jurisdiction in the case,
the analysis finds.
According to the study, the
basis in international law for
criminal jurisdiction varies
widely from nation to nation,
but is never affected by the
way in which the prisoner may
have been apprehended and
brought to trial.
Similarly, it is noted, the
United States Supreme Court
h a s consistently maintained
that the manner in which
physical custody of a prisoner
has been obtained in no way
affects his trial or impairs
the competency of the trial
court—even in cases of pris-
oners brought forcibly from
abroad to U.S. courts.
The report cites numerous
legal precedents to this effect,

Ker vs. Illinois, in which the
jurisdiction of an Illinois court
was challenged on the ground
that the a c c u s e d had been
seized in Peru in violation of
the law, forcibly b r o ugh t
against his will into the United
States and delivered to Illinois
authorities.
The U.S. Supreme Court held
that although this was an in-
stance of "kidnapping within
the Dominion of Peru without
any pretense of authority," it
in no way disabled the criminal
courts of the U.S. from proceed-
ing against the accused.

CHICAGO (JTA)—Two Chi-
cago youths were jailed on 60
day sentences for the destruc-
tion of a solid bronze Menorah
at Lawn Manor Hebrew Congre-
gation.
James Erlenborn, 16, a high
school student, and Alphonso
Radvila, 18, a university stu-
dent, received the sentences in
an appearance in J u v e n i l e
Court. They were also ordered
to make full restitution for their
vandalism.
The • young defendants were
given psychiatric examinations
at the Municipal Court Center.
